60mg I can't help but wonder how do you install/uninstall the rack and the hard top?

JIMBOX Yeah, I guess thats part of the business evolution-

Mine is one of the Prototypes made in 2008 and just about the first on the West coast----from Canada, MBRP.inc

Slartibartfast Thanks for the replys guys, but I think I found my answer:
My.Project-JK.com - The_Roof_Rack - Powered by PhotoPost
"Custom one of a kind roof rack made in Germany."
Oh well :,-(

In other news I came across an interesting build thread of someone making a somewhat similar rack: Heavy Duty Roofrack


And you're right, it does sit directly "on the tub".



When all said and done this too was a very fine looking rack!
From what I could gather from the build-blog he and his mate had access to a workshop and knocked up that rack in one day.


Not a bad day's work if I dare say so!

darrello bummer - I was looking at getting something like this, but I have to park downtown too often (my JKU is my DD) and 6'6" would mean almost no places I could fit.
05-16-2012 06:11 PM
JIMBOX Heh Heh, yeah I'm pretty spoiled with mine, but it looks to me like the first rack has to be removed to take the top off--or slid very carefully straight out the back--

Either one would compliment my Ace rails very nicely I think.

The top one is way permanent installing into the body like that, but also looks extremely beefy and able to take some cargo and whacks from branches as well as being independent of what top is being used.

The Off Camber rack is my current favorite based on the design and yeah...how it looks.

It might take a while for me to commit to any rack because I like how having a lower profile lets me get through the trees better when the trails get tight.
I've got about 78" clearance to my rack pads

Nope it looks like it hangs on the sides and could be removable. Wow. Interesting.

O_M_Jeep The rack in the pics bolts to tub, not the top, its still usable with the top off, the rack on the yellow JK is almost completely unlike the rack the OP is asking about, look also at the front mounts.
05-16-2012 01:04 PM
JIMBOX It's similar to my rack, thats sold by MBRP/Quad. as an "Off Camber" JK/JKU Rack-

Ive seen a similar rack in the newest quadratec mag partner.

O_M_Jeep My german isnt so gut as mine kinder yahrs, however, it appears to be an expedition Jeep that belongs to one of the owners of CT-Autohaus Haese, you could try sending them an email, Im betting it was a custom rack made and installed there. The Jeep is one they show, not a sale item. They did a lot of 'mods' to it, whats interesting is the personalized plate that says CJ 8

more pics of the Jeep
